    that is alarming. you need to click on cell standbye and see what % it says you were not connected to network. if it's high your phone was searching for service and that rapes your battery.
    So should I take my roaming capability off or something? Maybe that is what is jacking my battery? Problem is though, it wasn't happening before the update. I went the same places before my update and it wasn't that bad. I have almost had it with the battery life. I have to carry around my darn cord with me everywhere.

    The unfortunate truth is that when you have bad reception in your house your phone will use up a TON trying to find a signal. I cured part of that problem by having wi-fi on all the time for my internet however it still tries to get signals for telephone calls.

    Doesnt matter what carrier - or phone. You need good reception or it will eat your battery.

    When I go out for dinner my battery barely changes because I have good reception.

    if the phone was getting solid reception before and not now, take it into the stor and get it replaced. i already replaced one droid cause the signal searching was eating my batter. my new one is like gold now lasting 10-15 with medium use and 24 or more on light days.

    I have a problem with txting.
    I will be txting somone and it will just randomly go back to the main messaging menu that looks like this. It usually does it sometime between me sending a txt and receiving a txt back from the same person. It just started doing it yesterday.

    Edit: It also does it if i just open a txt thread and let it sit there. Also when it happens i lose signal for a split second.

    I have battery issues too. They drain even with the droid ogg.

    But I bought the extra battery and stand-alone charger. This makes so much sense. First off, all smart phones are going to have a shorter battery life than regular cell phones, so you should get an extra battery anyway.

    The stand alone charger frees you up to charge 'n swap with no wait time.

    My problem is that I travel and am on the road a lot. I think I will take it in and get it replaced.
